Re: Cant open remote up to change battery

Thank you so much to the person who suggested sliding it with the palm of your hand instead of your thumb. This actually FINALLY worked!

Re: Cant open remote up to change battery

Got my new Samsung QLED this morning.. the remote is a challenge.

 

i managed to open it by:  place the remote back side up on top of a towel, then using a flat-head screw driver, push on the back of the arrow in the direction of the arrow, it popped right open.  

 

Good luck.

Used latex gloves, and solved the problem 👍

Re: Cant open remote up to change battery

try using a rubber glove and pushing against the arrow...with traction, it opens easily!

Re: Cant open remote up to change battery

....in theory, the remote opens easily.

In reality...it does not and is the worst example of poor design on a remote control ever.

It's cute looking though!

BINGO. I used some latex surgeons gloves (unpowedered) that we had. (My wife's a medical technologist.) The extra traction got the back cover off. Found one battery corroded. Don't know why; we use the remote constantly.
